West Seattle Sunday: Alki Art Fair continues; all-ages open mike debuts @ Skylark; more

A few more notes before we get too far into our sun-is-trying-to-break-through Sunday:

OVERLAPPING 99 CLOSURES: Northbound Highway 99 between the West Seattle Bridge and Royal Brougham Way remains closed till 5 am tomorrow. And that will overlap with a southbound closure between the Battery Street Tunnel and WS Bridge from 9 pm tonight till 5 am tomorrow. (Our melded day-by-day version of the closure list for the week ahead, with info for both 99 and the Spokane Street Viaduct, will be published later today.)

TODAY’S YARD/RUMMAGE SALES: Check the listings (free to post!) in the WSB ForumsFreebies/Deals/Sales section – some of this weekend’s sales are on for today, too, including the Community School of West Seattle yard/bake sale (till 4 pm)

ALKI ART FAIR, DAY 2: Here are our reports from Day 1, and from Night 1. Hours are 10 am-6 pm today along the boardwalk, and that’s when you can catch the shuttle from the West Seattle High School parking lot (3000 California SW); music runs 10 am-8 pm (here’s the schedule).

WEST SEATTLE FARMERS’ MARKET: 10 am-2 pm at 44th/Alaska as always – peak time for some summer produce!

WING-EATING CONTEST: At West Seattle’s Wing Dome today – but it’s not an “everybody sit down and compete all at once” event – it’s ongoing from 11 am to 9 pm; info here.

PRESCHOOL OPEN HOUSE: 1-4 pm today at Little Rascals Preschool of West Seattle (WSB sponsor); map here.

FIRST ALL-AGES OPEN MIKE AT SKYLARK: Sign up at 3 pm, three songs each between 4 and 7 pm, at Skylark Café and Club (3803 Delridge Way SW). We have it on good word that musician India Spence (recently seen at Summer Fest) will be among the performers. Note that the bar IS open for those with 21+ up ID.

WEST SEATTLE COOKING CLUB: They usually meet on Mondays, but this is one of those special weekend gatherings just for those who are busy weekdays. 3 pm at Beveridge Place Pubthe theme is “Southwestern.”

MORE SHAKESPEARE IN THE PARK: Today Greenstage presents “Taming of the Shrew” at 3 pm in Lincoln Park, free.

      what time? if it’s a standing Sunday event let me know and we’ll give it its own line in the calendar.

    What is an “open mike”? Is that when Mike the Mayor openly shows up, or do you mean “open mic” as in a mic(rophone)?

      You can call it an “open mic” if you want; it’s an “open mike.” We worked with microphones for decades, in radio and TV, and that’s what the short form has always been. We’re die-hard old-school.
      You’ll never get me to take the hyphen out of e-mail, either.

Sorry, comment time is over.
